    Correct me if I’m wrong, – – but isn’t lifestyle’s ‘secondary’ menu automatically below the header??

    If I’m right (and I believe I am), – – you would go to dashboard/genesis/theme settings/navigation settings/include secondary menu?

    Then, – – go to menus and set up a secondary menu only (and not a primary)

    On this site I did just recently, the top menu is my primary, the one under the header is my secondary.

    No coding involved, – – all done from the dashboard . . . http://www.chesterfieldremodeler.com

    Thanks Susan, – – that’s not really my area, – – that site I’m showing is a site I made for a long-distance friend. I’m actually in central/southern New Jersey, and my own remodeling site is http://www.tr-built.com  It’s not wordpress, it’s all hand-coded, – – and it’s actually the first site I made (several years ago).

    That is really cool, thanks for that!!  I’m a css-tricks lurker myself, – – but I didn’t even know that was there!

    Very good stuff there, rbrown08, – – I did it in kind of a ‘back-door-cheater’ fashion.

    I made up a new html page and named it php, – – dropped it into the theme file, – – and let it automatically show up on my page edits right on my templates list. Then I just chose it instead of say, ‘default’, – – and I can then name any page I want to have that template.  It just needed one short paragraph of php to ‘title’ it.

    Just a one-shot solution, – – but I would think that’s all that would be needed. Any changes later, – – I would just re-code the php page itself.

    OK, – – I even created an ‘image-page’ with a more designed look, – – and all seems to be workable . . .

    If it doesn’t work right away, – – just try back in a bit.

    @bamajr

    I’m not sure if I’m understanding exactly what you’re looking for, – – do you mean a completely blank page and then just the two ‘text-buttons’??

    Anyway, – – I experimented a little with that in mind, – – and came up with this , – – (and put it very temporarily on a site I just made for a friend).

    And although I couldn’t use the ‘exact’ paging you want here for the obvious reasons that it’s a working site, – – if you click on each block of menu-text, – – you’ll at least see the differences up in the address bar of each  . . .

    I didn’t bother with much styling or any of that, – – just kept it bare bones.

    Lemme know if this is even close to what you’re looking for?? . . .

    P.S.  Didn’t use any ‘iframing’, – – bein’s you don’t seem to like that approach . . .

    Good to know about the favicon uploader, – – but I didn’t have any problem installing my favicon when I did it the just the other day.

    I just made the (multi-resolution) favicon, – – then named it favicon(.ico), – – then installed it in 3 places, just to be safe.

    The root itself, – – the genesis images folder, – – and (my) child-theme images folder.

    It showed up in mere seconds . . .

    I’m kinda’ new at this, – – but can’t you just ‘iframe’ if in??Create a folder with the necesssary files and folders inside it to achieve what you need, drop (ftp) it into your root, – – and then just use the little iframe shortcode to insert it right onto/into your (any) page.  The plug-in I use to do this very thing can be downloaded from here . . . http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/iframe/

    In other words, what your calling in should work independantly on it’s own if your were to type in ‘yoursite.com/newfolder’, – – as long as it works like that, – – your iframe shortcode will show the results exactly like that right on your page . . .
